Event Horizon Series Amazon Adam Wingard

Hell is just a word. The reality is much worse.

As we reported earlier, Amazon is really making a statement, with "The Boys" premiering a few weeks back and already being renewed for a second season, while they've also given new season orders to "The Expanse" and "Carnival Row". A James Wan-produced television series based on the ’90s slasher I Know What You Did Last Summer is also in the works, as is the just announced "Truth Seekers", the long gestured horror-comedy series starring Nick Frost and Simon Pegg as paranormal investigators. And they're just getting started!

Amazon is teaming with Paramount Television to develop a series adaptation of Paul W.S. Anderson's 1997 sci-fi horror film Event Horizon, reports Variety, who adds that Adam Wingard is set to executive produce and direct the potential series!

Wingard recently directed the film Godzilla vs. Kong, which is due out in theaters in March 2020. He has previously directed films like the recent Blair Witch reboot, The Guest, You’re Next, and the live-action version of Death Note.

The film's title referred to a spaceship that disappeared after testing an experimental gravity drive capable of creating an artificial black hole that was meant to allow the ship to travel to distant points in the galaxy. A rescue crew and the gravity drive’s inventor are sent to investigate after the ship mysteriously reappears, only to discover that the ship traveled to a hellish dimension outside of the known universe that infects the ship with a sinister sentience, leading to multiple deaths.

Amazon is also currently prepping the horror anthology series "THEM" from Lena Waithe.
